Nothing to do with a cape actually!

Let me try the short and terse answer.

When the first pronoun in the sentence is epicene (no gender specific), the relativefollowing pronoun can be plural.

If a client (no gender specific) does not like your website, they (relativefollowing pronoun) will never come back.

Likewise,

You can't cast aspersions on someone just because they are wearing a cape.

Worth mentioning here - singular they.
